Day 69

Bean Salad

Tried the bean salad recipe from How to Cook Everything. Used black-eyed peas (which I hadn’t tried before). Like most of the entries in Bittman’s cooking for dummies bible, it’s a simple recipe — just add onions, red-wine vinegar, olive oil and parsley. And it tasted simple. Too simple. So humdrum it doesn’t even rate a frowny face. I’ll have to repurpose some of this huge batch into something with a little more pizzazz.
